Make your interior more Natural.
Hardwood is a common choice as a flooring material due to its aesthetic look and restorability. It is the most durable and stable type of flooring. It has been around for centuries and was only found in the most affluent and royal homes of its time. There are very few flooring materials that have been around as long as wood. Many people may not know that wood is a natural insulator. It has thousands of air chambers per cubic inch which holds in heat. With just minimal work, and using select cleaning products (of which Cosmaroma carries), your floors will continue looking great for a long time to come. In addition to being low maintenance, installing hardwood boasts even more rewards to homeowners. A recent survey by realtors concluded that 82% of homes with hardwood floors sold faster and often for more money. If your goal is to improve the look, durability and value of your home, hardwood floors are definitely the way to go!
Engineered Wood with more resistance to lower and higher moisture level.
The best engineered wood floors are built having 3-12 ply layers that are cross layered, glued and pressed together. The inner core layers are are generally built up with either a hardwood and/or soft plywood type of material, which incorporates the tongue and groove fastening system along the edges of the boards. The top thicker hardwood veneer wear layer is then glued and pressed on the top surface of the core. Engineered hardwood flooring is available in almost any wood species. The benefits of using engineered wood floors include more resistance to lower and higher moisture levels than solid wood flooring, which adds to their appeal to use in damp basements or in regions of the country that have higher or lower than normal relative humidity levels. Also, engineered flooring (excluding the newer Click Lock flooring) can be direct glued-down over (dry) concrete slabs above or below grade or stapled down over a wood sub floor. Quality Engineered Hardwood flooring has the same resale value as 3/4 inch solid wood flooring, if you ever decide to sell your home.
